Spotlight is an extraordinary film based on real events; a team of investigative journalists uncover a widespread historical child sexual abuse by priests in the Catholic Church.
What is extra superb about this screening is that Kim Hosier, the Centre Director of Portsmouth Abuse & Rape Counselling Service (PARCS) will be introducing the film. She is an extraordinary person who runs a charity that Portsmouth really could not do without; they run so many vital services for abuse survivors in the area and they help so many people. – Tessa Foley
PARCS run vital services and counselling for survivors in Portsmouth and South East Hampshire.
The PARCS elephant, which has become somewhat of a celebrity in the Portsmouth area, as a representation of ‘the elephant in the room’ will be making an appearance at the screening too.
The screening of Spotlight will take place in EW 1.11, at 7.30 pm on Wednesday 7 March.
This special event is open to staff, students, and members of the public, you can reserve your seat and check out the rest of the Winter Programme on the Portsmouth Film Society website. University of Portsmouth students are eligible for free entry.
